orthostatic = greek right or of balance (in the medical field “in an upright posture”)
Decreasing tissue firmness leads to sagging of fat pads. Sagging cheeks form due to the displacement of the fat pads of the cheeks and favor the formation of a nasolabial fold (wrinkle between the corner of the mouth and the nose). Depending on the degree of wrinkles, they can be padded with tissue fillers or autologous fat or/and corrected with a face lift. A brow lift may be necessary to correct sunken eyebrows.
